I found Griffons a Convenient location, excellent facilities, great staff. Wonderful views of the vulture colony. The kitchen is very dark. We did a good morning game drive in Marakele, and nice walks on the property.

Out in the bush experience, with moderate comfort. Unfortunately we were a bit unlucky with the weather, a lot of wind on one day, and two thunderstorms at night, with lightning and hail. It is great if you are prepared for the outside bathroom (bats and night reptiles included), gas lamps and gas heater. Monkeys and wildebeest came by, and...

This was a real find - a peaceful, welcoming bush camp, rustic but very comfortable and very thoughtfully provisioned. Griffons Bush Camp, a short drive from the Marakele National Park, offers accommodation in separate stone-built cottages each with adjoining outdoor shower, toilet and washbasin, with plenty of gas-heated hot water. A separate and adjacent building has full kitchen facilities including...

It's not often you come across a place, particularly a week-end get-away, where you just don't want to leave... It's natural beauty, the distant cliffs filled with the Griffon vultures' nests, the sunset, sunrise, the passing Kudu, Vervet Monkeys, Impala, Zebras and Wildebeest.... with only the birds singing around you while you savour your morning cup of freshly brewed coffee...

Griffons is an awesome place to stay. It has a rustic bush feel and an amazing view. It is made up of a few two bedroom stone thatched chalets with an outside shower/bathroom and a communal cooking area. We had the whole place to ourselves which was magical. The host was excellent, he was there to make you feel safe...

What a wonderful place! We'd a great time in this fantastic camp.Thoma, the host and ranger, accompanied by "funny Foxy" made us feel like Kings and Queens! Great view, peaceful and quiet!. We enjoyed every second of our stay! If you like being one with the nature - go there!

“The 'Wild fig' chalet had good view of the mountain and the best sun rise over the bush ever!!”

“We stayed in Fig Tree - it was very convenient to the kitchen, though all the bedroom lodges seemed to be conveniently situated.”
